Well Gary is always saying I should post here :)
Online life can be distracting so have to balance it with painting time.

This seems good opportunity to share latest work.
A little guy that could represent one of the Kiwi pilots who flew in the Royal Flying Corps.

He's painted in acrylics - Vallejo, Gunze Sangyo & Jo Sonja

Here's some detail of his face...

Thanks Shaun & Tiger :)

Here's a preview of finished little guy.
I tried to make it like a cigarette collectors card from those times.

For your consideration,

Mike

Thanks Maarten, will have to see how time pans out :)
Regularly posting my work on only couple of sites dedicated to Figure modelling
Have in past though shared on ~10 sites so worried folk might seem a bit over the top.
Never a shortage of sites to post on, I guess like us all what is purpose for sharing?
For Me it's about sharing techniques & gauging others perspective - am I improving my skills.
Therefore Prefer to respond to questions or seek constructive feedback that I can learn from.

Do from time to time post for focused reason e.g. WW1 pilots on WW1 pilot site. NZ stuff on NZ site

All work is available on my Facebook page

Trust that makes sense.

Mike
